4 Smartphones That Will Make You Want to Ditch Your iPhone

Since the first iPhone was released, Apple has been the company to beat. However, Android phones have quickly caught up. It is possible to get a smartphone that bests the iPhone X. These four smartphones measure up to and surpass the iPhone X in several ways.


  • The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 offers multiple improvements over the Note 8 and stacks up nicely when compared to the iPhone X. The Galaxy Note 9 has a screen display size of 6.4 inches, which has higher resolution than the iPhone X’s screen size of 5.8 inches. While the iPhone X offers 3GB of RAM, the Note 9 comes with 6GB of RAM built in, that’s expandable up to 8GB.

    The Note 9 also offers 128GB of storage that is expandable up to 512GB. By contrast, the iPhone X comes with 64GB of storage that can be expanded up to 128GB. Plus, the battery in the Note 9 is more powerful at 4,000 mAh, while the iPhone’s battery stands at 2,716 mAh.

    One of the best features of the Note 9 is its powerful cameras. The dual 12-megapixel rear cameras contain a variable aperture on one of the lenses, which helps the phone capture great photos in low-light settings. The cameras in the Note 9 also contain artificial intelligence that adjusts the settings so you can capture the best possible picture. While the iPhone X also has two rear-facing 12 MP cameras, they do not have the variable aperture or the AI that helps to adjust settings automatically.

    Samsung Galaxy Note 9 phones are priced from a starting price of $799 to $899, depending on the carrier. If you want 512GB of storage, there is an additional cost of $250. The iPhone X costs $999 with 64GB of storage. If you want to get 128GB of storage, it will cost an additional $200.

  • The Google Pixel 3 stacks up nicely when it is compared to the iPhone X. The base model comes with a 5.5-inch screen, a 12.2 MP rear dual-pixel camera, two front 8 MP cameras, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. The Pixel 3 is available in three color choices, including not pink, just black, and clearly white.

    Other features include dual front speakers, noise suppression capabilities, and three microphones. The Pixel 3 has fingerprint recognition technology on its back to allow for quick unlocking of your phone. The cameras also feature an image stabilizer so that your pictures will be crystal-clear.

    The Pixel 3 is available from Google for $799, which comes with a USB-C headphone adapter.

  • Coming with up to 1TB of storage, 8GB of RAM, and the impressive 855 Snapdragon processor, the Samsung Galaxy S10 offers the type of power and speed that techies search for.

    There are three rear-facing cameras, including a 12 MP telephoto camera, a 12 MP wide-angle camera, and a 16 MP ultra-wide camera. The two front-facing cameras include a 10 MP selfie camera and an 8 MP RGB depth camera. The built-in cameras and lenses allow you to capture terrific pictures that appear exactly as how you see the world around you. Plus, the dual aperture lens allows you to take great photos in low-light conditions.

    When it comes to storage, the S10 starts with 128GB but is expandable up to 512GB.

    The Galaxy S10 is available from Samsung starting at $999.

  • The Huawei P30 was released on March 26, 2019, in Europe. Although the P30 is currently unavailable for purchase at retail locations in the U.S., it is still possible to get one unlocked through Amazon or importers.

    Why go through the effort of importing an unlocked phone with no warranty or plan? Well, the P30’s primary camera, a 40 MP wide-angle camera, is among the best in the market. This high-quality camera is able to see four spectrums of color instead of the normal three, which allows it to detect more variations on color. Plus, it has stellar optical zoom and night-vision features that allow your photos to have an unparalleled vibrancy.

    Costing around $910, the Huawei P30 comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Unlike the iPhone X, the P30 has a headphone jack.
